This gas-powered pulling/lifting winch is ideal for pulling wire thru conduits or lifting equipment such as transformers, scaffolding, bricks, antennas, etc. Its rope grabbing system will hold a load in position allowing the operator to work safely. The centrifugal clutch is activated simply by pulling on the rope. As soon as the operator stops pulling, the throttle goes back down, the drum stops turning (preventing rope damage) and the rope grabbing systems holds the load in position. This system allows lifting and lowering of loads.
